Why go to Taormina

Perched on the slopes of Monte Tauro and overlooking the Ionian Sea, Taormina certainly has wow factor. Alongside sun, sea and spectacular ancient ruins, a holiday to Taormina offers fabulous food and wine, chic shopping, and day trips to smouldering Mount Etna.

Founded by the Greeks more than 2,700 years ago, Taormina has been a tourist hotspot since the 18th century, when it was a must-see for aristocrats on the Grand Tour. Dubbed Sicily's answer to Monte Carlo, this jewel of the Mediterranean today attracts jetsetters and families alike.

Taormina’s mountainside setting makes for sublime views, but sun-seekers will want to walk or ride the cable car straight down to the sea. Stake out your spot on Mazzaro, a family-friendly pebble beach lapped by turquoise water, or head to Isola Bella to snorkel in shallow coves teeming with fish.
